Product Detail

Product Description Synthes 2.4mm VA-LCP Two Column Volar Distal Radius Plate and Torque limiting attachment, 1.2Nm Synthes VA-LCP Distal Radius System is intended for fixation of complex intra- and extra-articular fractures and osteotomies of the distal radius and other small bones.
Recall Number Z-2057-2013
Classification Class II
Code Info Part number J8301-F
Product Distributed Qty 119, 891
Reason For Recall The firm is initiating a Field Safety Correction for the labeling of the 2.4mm VA-LCP Two Column Volar Distal Radius Plate and 1.2 Nm Torque Limiting Attachment. The US Technique guide lists 1.2Nm TLA as an option for use with the 2.4mm Variable Angle LCP (VA-LCP) Two-Column (Standard & Narrow) Volar Distal Radius Plate. The potential exists for the VA locking screw to be driven through the 2.4mm VA-LCP Two Column Volar Distal Radius Plate when used with a 1.2Nm Torque Limiting Attachment. If a screw passes through the VA-LCP plate, additional medical intervention during the index procedure could be needed.
